Q: Any update due to COVID-19?
A: Like all area groups, we are closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation in our community. At this time, we have no plans of changing or adjusting summer camps this July and August. If any adjustments or changes need to be made, we will share those with all registered campers in late June. We're looking forward to a much needed artistically fun summer!
Q: What does a normal day at camp look like?
A: Each camp starts off on day one with introductions and "getting to know you" games to immediately start friendships and team building for the many days to come. The camp will then divide into smaller groups to learn a short song and dance for auditions. Later in the day, campers will audition for the directors by singing, acting, and dancing - ending with a read-through of the script. By day two, all campers will know which roles they are playing and jump into learning the show! Campers will stay actively engaged the entire camp day with a few short snack breaks and a longer lunch break. Week two, campers will move to the stage and begin adding costumes, sets, mics, and more as they prepare for performances.
Q: What will the kids do for lunch?
A: We take a short 30-minute break for lunch each day. We ask campers to bring a bagged lunch with them, please be sensitive to food allergies (no nuts please). Our Snack Shack will be open before camp, after camp, and at lunch for campers to purchase candy, chips, and beverages. We will also have Food Truck Fridays where campers can purchase hot lunches outside (please note this may not be available for Pint Sized camps). Additional special snack opportunities will be announced as we get closer to camps.
Q: Does my child need to prepare anything for auditions?
A: Nope! We will teach them a short song and dance from the show on day one when they arrive. We just ask that they are familiar with the show (watch the movie or on Youtube).
Q: If there are auditions, is it possible my child won't be in the show?
A: Every camper who registers for camp will automatically be in the show. There are no cuts in our program. Auditions are to determine who is playing which parts. Everyone will be on stage several times throughout the show, no matter which role(s) they receive.
Q: Is 9AM-3PM too long for my child to be in camp for rehearsals?
A: We have found that the 9AM-1PM time frame for the Pint Sized campers, and 9AM-3PM for the Kid and Teen campers is the perfect amount of time to have fun while putting together a quality production. We will take breaks during the day, and when weather permits, we will even take the campers outside for fresh air.
Q: Are there refunds on tuition?
A: Unfortunately, we do not offer refunds on camp payments or deposits. However, you may put down a deposit for camp by calling or emailing us. Remaining balances must be paid by April 15th, 2020.
Q: Are there cap sizes on camps?
A: Yes. Each camp is a little different based on location and stage as well as age of the students. We do expect to fill quickly, so reserve your spot today!
Q: We're not sure which location is best for us, how can we see it in advance?
A: We would love to set up a tour with you! The full time OFC Creations office is located at the Lyric Theatre making times fairly flexible, while tours at Seton or the Kodak Center may take a little longer to set up. Please contact us today to start the ball rolling.
Q: I have to be at work before 9AM (or) I don't get of work until 5PM. What do I do?
A: We offer a Before-Care and After-Care program for campers who need to be dropped off early or need to stay past 3PM. Click HERE for more details. Please note, After-Care is not available for Pint Sized camps.
Q: Do you offer financial aid or scholarships?
A: OFC has a limited quantity of scholarships available for summer 2019, and we are committed to making the arts available to everyone - no matter the financial situation. To apply for an OFC Scholarship please CLICK HERE
